Silence and Contemplation
24-Nov-96
The Lord
DH-71

Now we are going to talk about contemplation, because you must make sure that your heart is cleansed through silence. At the same time, silence increases knowledge and reaches the virtue of contemplation in which the spirit permanently ascends. I solemnly tell you that silence is a whisper and a grace, through which I instigate the truth in your heart.

So many people would be better off in silence and solitude, rather than looking at themselves through their own eyes of wisdom, not letting others guide them.

Only silence lets the soul be regulated by God and to flourish in the gifts of divine humility and chastity. And I am going to enlighten you even more: Contemplation is the measure of humility. Whoever chooses silence through prayer and discipline will be blessed with true wisdom and no vanity. The soul improves with and feeds from intimacy.

If in the midst of this contemplation you feel that the light is going out, be certain that this darkness is so blessed that it will light up your soul, since humility can only be sown in contemplation.

Please understand that I shape My chosen ones, living proof of My Love. Then you should not care who is being awkward with you, using harsh words, criticisms, ordering you in a selfish and authoritarian manner; you can keep peace and harmony within you if you pray silently and earnestly without straying from your objective. Do not let people influence you, but be yourself following only Me... Open the door!
